Happy August, Beach Readers! We hope you have the chance to savor these last weeks of summer on the sand—thankfully, we’ve picked out what we hope will be an engaging, quick, fun read for the shore to take you through Labor Day! (And, if you’re looking for more fun things to do, don’t forget to check out our #99days calendar.)
In case you missed last week’s post, we announced our August book as A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams. This is Beatriz’s second novel, following the internationally acclaimed Overseas, and we expect the follow-up to be just as fab. For a quick overview, check out our Q&A with Beatriz here.
If you’d like to follow along with us and join in on the discussions right here on our blog, here’s the reading schedule (though, we have a feeling you’ll breeze through this one–it’s tough to put down!):
August 13: Chapters 1 – 10 (Seaaview, Rhode Island, July 1938)
August 20: Chapters 10 – 18 (Manhattan, Tuesday, September 20, 1938)
August 27: Chapters 19 – End
Remember that on August 27, instead of a blog post discussion, we’ll be chatting with Beatriz Williams live on Twitter at 8 PM EST. Feel free to prep your own questions and Tweet directly at Beatriz using the hashtag #clbookclub. We look forward to seeing you there!
